London calling ...


Mark's finest papers speedy fox & friends challenge 148 asks us to 'tell us about your state' - well, as I live in Bromley, UK, it is one of the London Boroughs, so I've made a couple of cards that reflect life in London, using a couple of upcycled pieces from a folder - very simply added on to black card blanks, with Craftime sentiments added.

I had to take the photos at an angle because the cardstock is very shiny and was reflecting glare from the flash (how I wish for sunny days to be able to take pictures outside) - and please excuse the stray white speckles that are just bits that have now brushed off.



These are also for:
